BIOGRAPHY/PERSONAL INTEREST: I grew up in western New York and then worked in a vast eclectic variation of positions from banking to advertising to teaching PE while traveling with spouse as an Army wife for 22 years and 10 months. Have lived many different places and have really enjoyed experiencing different cultural and geographic places. Came into nursing as my 2nd career, and into academia with nursing education in 2006. Have taught nursing in Missouri, Texas and now Honolulu.  I have 3 grown children, along with 6 precious grandchildren who all live on the mainland in Missouri.   I thoroughly enjoy just being outside and doing many 'outdoor' activities such as cornhole, hiking, snorkeling, ball games, and travel.  I have walked 117 km of the "El Camino' in Spain, completed volksmarch in Germany and lived in Korea a year to name a few of places I've been blessed to visit.  



My interest lies in helping students connect the pieces of their knowledge into by "hands on" experiential learning whether in the simulation lab or with face to face patients.   

Interest lies in helping students see a broader sense of global healthcare & helping other. I have taken nursing students to Kolkata India for 5 weeks, taken nursing students to Haiti for 2 weeks. Have volunteered in women's home in Columbia South America.  I have helped with tornado cleanup in Oklahoma and taken student for tornado cleanup in Joplin Missouri.  Have run first aid tent at special Olympics with nursing students for 3 years along with participating in 'Day of Caring' with nursing students for many social/economic needs within the local area of the nursing school in Missouri. 


PRESENTATIONS & PROJECTS: Doctoral presentation was on "teaching healthcare workers to recognize human trafficking victims". Numerous presentations on teaching/learning in nursing education.
